It is possible that one side of the connection is seg-faulting and
dying.  If you ensure that core files are not disabled (check your
ulimit setting), you may find that there is a core file that you could
use to figure out where the program is dying.  Alternately, you could
attach to one or both processes with a debugger after it starts running
(e.g. "gdb /usr/bin/rsync 12345" where "12345" is the already-running
process ID), tell it to 'c'ontinue to run, and you'll see any abnormal
signals that may pop up.
